We could not get enough of the Downton Abbey drama series, so when we heard there was going to be a film, we freaked.

Previously, we were heartbroken when the rebellious Lady Rose MacClare, played by Lily James, revealed she will not be in the upcoming drama.

But we are so excited to hear that the original principal cast from the acclaimed television series have confirmed their appearance in the movie.

And that’s not all! Also joining the all-star cast will be multi-award winning actress Imelda Staunton (Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter), Geraldine James, Simon Jones, David Haig, Tuppence Middleton, Kate Phillips (Venetia Scott in The Crown), and Stephen Campbell Moore amongst others.

It looks like it is going to be an amazing film!

Academy-Award winner Julian Fellowes, who created Downton Abbey and wrote the film’s screenplay, will be one of the producers as well. So, we can guarantee the movie’s similarity to the series.

Focus Features and Carnival Films announced the start of principal photography on the film today.

So, it is officially filming, and we cannot wait!

The beloved television series went on for six drama-filled seasons, winning three Golden Globe Awards, 15 Primetime Emmys and a BAFTA.

The show has gained global attention, becoming the most nominated, non-U.S. television show in Emmy history!

There is no doubt that the show’s huge fan base is delighted with the news of the upcoming film, especially since we get to see the cast we have grown to love with each episode.

Hopefully, it won’t be too much longer until we get to see what happens next to the drama-filled Crawley family.

The four-episode long debut of Striking Out concluded last night – and viewers are already crying out for a renewal of the hit series.

After a tumultuous few weeks, fans were left on a bit of a cliff hanger, with everything left very much hanging in the middle of things.

Amused viewers took to Twitter after noticing some rather interesting plot detail: Like who just has a random spare apartment lying empty? 

With four episodes was there really any time for even a quick suit change?

Finishing with a bang instead of everything getting all wrapped up, we couldn't agree with this expectant fan more:

So then, will we get a second series? Fans will just have to wait and see.

A photographer’s adorable series of photos shows just how universally cute puppies are!

Photographer J Nichole Smith, who has been a professional pet photographer for 10 years, snapped portraits of 25 breeds of puppies for her book Puppyhood to show just how different – and adorable – each dog can be at the same age.

The photographer said the project, which took 30 days to complete, was the “single best assignment I’ve ever had!”

And we can see why!

“All the puppies in the book were photographed at six weeks of age,” she said. “This stipulation allowed us to use life-size images of each pup, we wanted all of the puppies to be the same age. This way, the drastic differences in size from breed to breed would be emphasized.”

The pictures show a combination of pure-bred pups and mixed-breed ones including Basset Hounds, French Bulldogs and Irish Settlers.

Altogether now… Awwwwwwww!
